are the cornerstonee of my plan. first, education. i agree, education is key for the future of our economy. our training programs right now, 47 of them are housed in the federal government, reporting to eight difffrent agencies. we've got to get those dollars back to the states and go to the workers. the secondary, taxation. we agree, we have to bring the tax breaks down both for corporations and for individuals. in order to not lose revenue, also lowered deductions and credits and exemptions so we can take in the same amount of money when you account for growth. the third area, energy. energy is critical, and production of oil and gas in the u.s. is up, but not due to his policies, in spite of his policies. mr. president, all the increase in natural gas and oil has happened on private land, not on government land. on government land, your administration has cut the number of permits and licenses in half. i am president, i will double them, and also get the oil from offshore and alaska, and i will bring that pipeline in from canada. by the way, i like coal. people in the coal industry feel it i

is really to educate the commissioners and staff and to start focusing on some sensible ways in which some of these technology glitches can be capped ended. gerri: educate the staff. high-frequency trading has been around for awhile. it seems to me these folks should know everything about it. why don't they? >> i think there is clearly a lag time between when government becomes aware of technological advances and when it starts to understand them fully. i'm not justifying the time frame that has gone on because we have had these problems, as you pointed out, for over two years now. but i think the government is well advised to proceed only when it knows what it is actually doing, rather than just jumping into the freight. gerri: a point. and here's what they will talk about tomorrow, preventing errors in trading car responding to market crises once they have occurred, so it will take this on with people who are inside the industry and people who are critics of the industry. how should they go about either regulating this or changing it or fixing it because you know as well as i do that inv

representative has gone out too far from the constituency and then educate the elect rate about how the representative sideways with the will with the public opinion of the people. you take that ad that cross roads ran. we were running it in the states talking about how the president passed this stimulus program. the stimulus thing was wildly unpopular and the ads that the super pac can do is hold the president or another elected official to account for what they can. it can't change public opinion. we can identify places where an elected representative is sideways with the constituent and let people know about it. i don't know that i agree with it the premises of the question it's necessarily bad. i think it brings a to light a lot of things people wouldn't otherwise know. >> i think in the credibility product. i-- [inaudible] it would allow challengers and underfunded candidates if you were to just waive a wand to get rid of limits and allow teem contribute as much as they want to the candidates as long as it's disclosed the press and opponent could decide whether or not that is h

are losing their jobs, homes, decent wages, affordable health care and higher education. our civil liberties are under attack. the wealthy few are making out better than ever. >> this is also about whether our nation continues down the road toward totalitarianism. >> sound unfamiliar? as president obama and mitt romney squared off for the first time, we break the sound barrier by expanding the debate in real time to include two candidates shut out of the major political parties. the green party's jill stein and the justice party's rocky anderson. expanding the debate. this is what democracy sounds like. all of that and more coming up. this is "democracy now!," democracynow.org, the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman. we are on the road in denver, colorado. president obama and republican challenger mitt romney squared off in denver wednesday night in the first of three presidential campaigns. drilling obama in the polls of several battleground states, romney sought to rejuvenate his campaign with an attack on what he called president obama's policies of trickle-down government. >> i am con
overburdens in regulation and cuts spending one penny of every dollar. it focuses on education to make sure we are empowering our workforce for the jobs that are available. lastly, it develops a comprehensive energy plan so we can put people back to work while we are protecting our economy and being an energy independent. i spend time developing my plan. you have no plan. i think the people of connecticut want to know what we're going to do for them. >> mr. murphy, you have 30 seconds. >> linda mcmahon should stop spreading these stories. it's not ok to make up these stories when you're running for the senate. my work is based in the work of debt and public service and focusing tax cuts on the middle- class, not by focusing tax cuts on the affluent and rich. my focus is on rebuilding the education system, not divesting from funding the most important services to our states. they're big differences in are planted as we should be talking about. >> is the public being well served by the quality and nature of this campaign? we are here today in a formal debate and youtube are probably going to ans
-pupil funding. now these politicians say unless we send more tax dollars to sacramento, they'll cut education again. here's a new approach. prop thirty-eight sends billions in new education dollars straight to our local schools, and guarantees the politicians can't touch it. thirty-eight will restore the education cuts from sacramento. so remember this number. thirty-eight. days... cbs 5 reporter, len es >>> gasoline prices are spiking all across the bay area. they're up $0.10 to $0.40 in the past couple days. why the pump prizes are rising, as oil prices are going down. >> reporter: it was just last week when drivers were paying $3.95 a gallon. today the same gas up $0.30 to $0.40 more. >> i don't understand the big jumps. >> reporter: tom robinson says prices could go up another $0.50 a gallon before it's over. and it's only happening here. >> this really appears to be just a west coast phenom, primarily california. you have low inventories and refinery problems. >> reporter: a chevron fire was just the beginning. a power failure in torrance have cut supplies. the low inventories caught a l
jobs outdate faster and spin off new jobs. and they each one requires more education. and i just think if we're going it i think america is a huge advantage in the world. because the i think the world is going to be divided going forward between high imagination and enabling countries and low imagination enabling country. rethe highest imagination enabling country in the world. if you have spark of an idea you can go to delta in taiwan they'll design it. they'll get you a cheap chinese manufacture. amazon will gift wrap it for christmas. free lancer get the logo. they are commodities except this. that's no country that does better. the problem with this though, the days will ford will move to your job with 25,000 person factory is over. it's 2500 people and a lot of robots and you know the old joke, the modern factory of the future is two employees, a man and the dog. the man is there to feed the dog and the dog there to keep the man away from the machines. generating 12 million nor jobs maybe it's possible only going to be possible if we once again get everyone starting something. so
the chance to get a great education and get the skills they need to compete. that is the third part of my plan. education is the only reason i am standing here today. son of a single mom. it is the only reason michelle got a chance. the question is are we going to give that opportunity to everybody. right now there are millions of students who are paying less for college because we took away billions of dollars going to banks and we said let's give them directly to students. [applause] so now you have got a choice. we can gut investments in education like governor romney wants to do to pay for tax breaks for the wealthy. [boos] don't boo, vote. or we can decide that no child should have at their dream deferred because of overcrowded classrooms. no family should set aside a college acceptance letter because they don't have the money. no company should have to look to some other country because they cannot find the workers with the right skills here at home. nevada, i wanted, recruit thousands of new math and science teachers, improve early education, create 2 million more slots in communit
for energy policy, education, for jobs. that came across really strong. one comment about $90 billion given to bring jobs where we could have hired 2 million teachers really made a huge difference on that, too. president obama looks like he was uncomfortable. he did not look like he wanted to be there. mitt romney had a good night. whether that will show up at the polls is another story. i think mitt romney has a good shot now. if they get mitt romney in there, it is a win for a america, too. host: of next is bernard in south carolina. hello. caller: how are you doing? i do not understand what the caller was saying because mitt romney did not explain anything. he kept saying he knew how to do it, but he never said how he was going to do it. he brought up a lot about what obama had done, but what is he going to do? if he has a plan to do something, it seems like he ought to lay that plan out for the american people so he can say what he is going to do. to me he is not saying anything. thank you for taking my call this morning. people need to look at the facts and what he is saying before the
into the educational contexts and you're talking about mobile on its part farm, and a lot of this access to the broadbent for mobile devices and minority communities in particular, i do not view that as and the acceptable substitute for a laptop or desktop. >> comcast david cohen on the cable industry. monday at 8:00 eastern on c-span 2. campaign stop in appleton. this was her second visit to wisconsin in a little more than a month. it's half an hour. [cheers] >> thank you so much! yes, i'm very excited to be with you all today. i want to start by thanking eli for that very kind introduction for everything he's doing for this campaign. i want to thank a couple of -- one more person as well. i want to recognize former senator russ feingold. [cheers] thank you for everything you've done for this state and everything that he's doing for the campaign here in wisconsin. and most of all, i want to thank all of you, especially all the students here at lawrence university. thanks for being here. yes! yes! now, you all seem pretty fired up and ready to go. [cheers] and that's great because i'm fe
. i love education, i want to provide people -- >> yeah, we all want the same thing. it's just whether you -- we want to get to the same place, it's how you want to get there. one example was like over the last three or four years, the president has been able to kind of go unchallenged when he puts forward a lot of things. like small business, that only 3% of small businesses would be affected by the tax increases. we've known all along here that that 3% are the ones that employ 54% of the workers in small businesses. one out of four workers. you never hear that. so when you're able to sort of hide behind a campaign or david axelrod just to see it actually where someone challenged -- because presidents don't get challenged anymore. and to watch it happen stripped bare was something to behold. . >> two points on that. on your point, one of the democratic veteran strategists involved in multiple presidential campaigns made your point to me which is presidents go through an office -- go through their term for four years, they don't have anybody talking to them like that, they don't have a
that he was looking to do and creating job growth and education. with education, he presented to be in support of that. one of the things that stuck immediately was he is looking to cut pbs. i can't imagine anyone going growing up without reading rainbow and sesame street. i didn't feel specifics. >> your former u.s. army officer, you served in the united states military. you now work in i.t. you are a supporter of president obama. this was a domestic issues debate tonight. what we didn't hear was any talk about what either one of these candidates would do in finding jobs for veterans. was this a glaring admission? we have a new generation returning to this country from war, but yet we heard no talk of how veterans were going to be provided for in jobs in this economy. >> fortunately, the president has a very clear record of supporting veterans both on the economic side and on the actual defense side. so since it was an economic debate on domestic policy, veteran job act, which the president strongly supported, which was to incentivize businesses to recruit and hire veterans
there tried to figure out how they're going to save for their kids' college educations, and they need a break. look. nobody likes taxes. i would for for that no one pays them including myself. we have to pay the core investments. >> the fact is businesses in america are paying the second highest tax rate of anywhere in the world. our tax rate is 30 5% pish. ireland is 37%. where are companies going to go? we need to cut the business tax rate in america. of all times in america, we need to cut people's taxes. we need to create jobs, and not spread the wealth around. debate is the first of three at the university of the dinner, focusing at domestic policy. the debate begins at 9:00 with live coverage on c-span, c-span radio and c-span.org. the next week a town hall format. all of this live on c-span. we are also bringing you live coverage of congressional debate tonight. tonight the texas senate debate with ted and cruz. then journalists and scholars will be talking about the upcoming debates. it is called a citizen's guide that helps the watch and understand the three presidential debates this
in college after the cultural revolution. this was the most liberal era in china's educational system. they were exposed to western ideas he reads english right well. now that is a wonderful opportunity. this also could be a problem because if we fail to understand, this is a generation, because of their personal experience, they do not want the electorate. they will be more conducive with giving reasoning. you just use force to intimidate them and they will react strongly. what i said is important. that if we use force, just a single-minded lecture, we're not resonating very well. they will react strongly, the hu jintao generation. i do not know if you watch the interview. this is 15 years ago. he interviewed -- in "60 minutes." michael wallace points his finger and says you're a dictator. several times he said that. he laughed. after many years, people thought his approach was very smart. it made michael wallace embarrassed. if you do the same thing with xi jinping, it will be a disaster. we need to know this kind of mindset, this kind of experience. that is why what henry kissinger
gue went through a lot of research and points to non- college educated white women as a group that has moved some in the last couple of weeks. non-college educated white men are a no-fly zone for the president. but the women were up for grabs. have you noticed anything like that? is that a metric you are looking at? >> it is. everybody talks about the women's vote. there are a number of factors. people do not realize this -- john mccain won white women by seven points. that is not enough to win overall. obviously, he lost by seven points. when you look at white women voters, there are groups that are more likely to vote republican. those include white women without college degrees, white women who are married, and women with children. when you look at the differences between white women who are married and white women who are single, whether it be they are not married, they are widowed, or they are divorced, those groups vote overwhelmingly for obama. if ron is right and the president is making gains with non-college educated white women, that is problematic for our side. i have not se
jobs and he answered education. he was asked about jobs and answered by the education. i thought he may not have it . like george bush in 2004 not used to be crossamed and he showed that. let's listen to more. >> the fact is, if you are lowering the rates the way you describe, governor, then it is not possible to come up with enough deduction and loop holes that only affect high income individuals to avoidd either raising the deficit or burdening the middle class. it's math. it is arithmetic. >> steve: which we have heard the president say on the stump. it is interesting and so critical for people to see, i was reading one poll, 15 or 18 percent of the country waiting to see the first debate because they were sitting on the fence and they want to see the guys side by side. mitt romney's job was to look presidential. he looked presidential and looked like he had better answers than the president of the united states. >> gretchen: and so the group of voters you are tryying to get at this point, middle class americans. that was the thesis. uncommitted voters, 500 voters polled directly bef
support me because of my bipartisan record. i have a record of accomplishment. i work on education bills and a tax cut. that was done with the republican governor, is split between republicans and democrats in the house and senate. it was a bipartisan effort. we got it done for texas. road. been on the i really do not know. >> mr. sadler, a democrat has not won a statewide office in texas since 1994. do you consider this an uphill battle? >> for an open senate seat, it is always a battle, and should be, and needs to be, regardless of the party. i understand we have not elected a democrat in a long time. >> let's go to mr. cruz. he said the day after you beat lt. governor dewhurst, he said he would run scared for the general election. but you have agreed to this and what other debt -- televised debate. you criticized governor dewhurst for having almost 40 candidate forms up to the primary, but are you planning its eighth and coasting? safe and coasting? >> we have been crisscrossing the state of texas. we have been all over the state, literally hundreds of dop's and vfw halls and enny's t
and education. governor romney talked about medicaid and how we can send it back to the states. that means a 30% cut in the primary program we held for seniors in nursing homes, kids with disabilities. that is not a right strategy for us to move forward. >> what about simpsons bowles? >> i have my own plans. if you want to make adjustments, make it. go to congress and fight for it. >> that is what we have done. >> you have been president for four years. he said he would cut the deficit in half. we still have trillion-dollar deficits. if you are reelected, we will get to a trillion-dollar debt. you have said you will cut the deficit in half. you find $4 trillion in cuts. we still show trillion-dollar deficits every year. that does not get the job done. why is it that i do not want to raise taxes? i do not want to raise taxes on people. in 2010, he said he would extend the tax policies we have now and not raise taxes because when the economy is going slow like this, you should not raise taxes on anyone. the economy is still going slow. it is growing more slowly now than when he made that statemen
